Just because Hillary Clinton is stalling her official announcement while her supporters scurry about amassing her campaign war chest does not mean the rest of us cannot see what is coming.

Led Zep says no to a president, Mountain Dew fire rappers and David Gilmour imposter arrested

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 8, 2013
Organizers of the 12.12.12 Sandy relief concert got Bill Clinton to plead with Led Zeppelin to perform (they, again, said no); Mountain Dew and Hip Hop aren't mixing so well lately, as the soda company axes endorsement deals with Lil Wayne and Tyler, the Creator, for controversial lyrics and a goat commercial (respectively); and a Minnesota man pretended to be David Gilmour while getting checked out at a local hospital and was promptly arrested when staffers looked up a photo of the real Gilmour on the web.

Your Monday To Do List

Having a case of the Mondays is usually a bad thing/really annoying phrase, but not when there's actually fun stuff happening! Forget what your calendar says; tonight is full of weekend-worthy events.Experimental Electro-Pop musician Zola Jesus performs tonight at the Contemporary Arts Center. This one-woman noise machine is known for commanding a room, despite her tiny stature. The unique architectural aspects of the venue should be a perfect match to Jesus' (real name: Nika Roza Danilova) individual sound and performance style. Doors open at 7:30 for the 8 p.m. show, with Talk Normal as the opening act. $10 for CAC members, $15 for everyone else at the door. Read Leyla Shokoohe's interview with Jesus here.Afterwards, stop by Milton's Prospect Hill Tavern for their Monday night vinyl club. Record-collectors and music lovers alike can bring their favorite albums to play, or have resident DJs J.Zang, DJ Mowgli and DJ Dirty C play them for you. Go here for more information, including a list of popular music genres and guidelines. Enjoy a wide variety of vinyl tunes alongside a couple beers. It's only 4 days 'til Friday, right?There's also a fair amount of live music tonight. Bluegrass-"citybilly" hybrid Oakhust plays Stanley's Pub at 9 p.m.; Sparrow Bellows continues its residency at MOTR Pub, playing at 10 p.m.; Monday = Mad Frog for many as Tropicoso presents its weekly Salsa night at the Clifton Heights club. For more news about live shows and concerts, CD releases and daily music history notes, follow our music blog.Saving your partying for tomorrow (Mardi Gras)? Stay home and tune into PBS for the first half of a two-part series on former president Bill Clinton. Check out more television tidbits here.
 
 

Don't Fool Yourself, the Economic Game is Rigged

The latest findings of the U.S. Census show the gap between the richest and poorest Americans is at its widest since records tracking household income have been kept, and is the highest among all industrialized Western nations. As reported by the Associated Press and others, the top 20 percent of Americans (those earning above $100,000 annually) received almost 50 percent of total income.
